COFFINS "The Other Side Of Blasphemy" [Osmose Prod] [CD, Digipak]
Death/Doom Metal from Japan
Coffins was spawned from a need to create slow, crawling detuned death metal in the vein of old masters like Autopsy and Winter. An obvious Hellhammer and Frost obsession rears its putrid head upon opening this Coffin as well. Bringing the pain all the way from Japan, Coffins' second full length release is derivative in the best possible sense of the word. No frills, just thrills for those disgusted at the mockery nowadays metal seems to have become. Where are the bands like Carnage and old Grave? Mid-paced, skull-crushing death metal and brutally low vocals - Coffins carries the torch that very few seem to bear.
